Was Jerry Jones’ Plane in New Orleans for a Sean Payton Visit?
While Jerry Jones is certainly the type of owner and GM to take a flyer on a long shot for his team, it’s looking unlikely that his plane’s appearance in New Orleans had anything to do with a Sean Payton recruiting trip. Jones has stated time and again that Jason Garrett is his head coach, and unless Payton would be looking to log some time as an offensive coordinator (he wouldn’t), then this is probably just hype.
Here’s a tweet of the photo that started it all:

Then, later that night, we saw Jerry doing Jerry at a piano bar in this tweet:

The less we think about Jerry Jones dancing at a piano bar, or anywhere else, the better, so let’s just drop this.
